Peach & Vanilla Mini Filo Tarts

About the bake

Our Peach and Vanilla Mini Filo Tarts are very special peach tarts made with a crispy filo pastry base and filled with a vanilla and mascarpone cheese filling. Using the bun tin to mould the filo pastry into delicate little cups is the perfect way to carry the sweet peach filling.

  1. Step 1:

    Preheat oven to 190°C (fan 170°C/gas mark 5). Grease 8 individual bun tins.

  2. Step 2:

    Open out the filo pastry sheets and cut the stack into eight equal squares. Lay one pastry square into a bun tin, lightly brush with butter and then scatter over a little caster sugar.

  3. Step 3:

    Place a second piece of pastry over the first to form a star shape, repeat with the brushing and scattering and then top with a third and fourth piece, brushing with butter and sprinkling with sugar. Make 7 more tarts in the same way.

  4. Step 4:

    Bake for 10 minutes until they are golden brown. Allow to cool in the tins.

  5. Step 5:

    Meanwhile mix the mascarpone cheese with the light muscovado sugar and vanilla bean paste.

  6. Step 6:

    Spoon the cheese mixture between the tartlets, arrange 4 peach slices on top of each tart.

  7. Step 7:

    Warm the apricot glaze in the microwave for 30 seconds, and then brush over the peaches to glaze. Serve within 1 hour of filling.
